The festival of lights means nothing to the LTA and TP especially if it involves a rally of 50 motorcyclists

I guess the authorities aren't a huge fan of this tradition! 

In the first few seconds, large crowds have gathered on both sides of the road as a mass of motorcyclists roar through the street.

Another video showing a different perspective of this gathering captures the magical moment when the large party passes through the crowd.

Riding through the roads, a cambike manages to get a glimpse of all the bikers waiting patiently at a traffic junction just before the 'parade' starts.

However, it appears that a few of these motorcyclists might have attracted some unwanted attention from the Traffic Police (TP).

Several officers issued fines to these cyclists as they stood around in a large grass patch.

Some of these motorcyclists could be seen not wearing masks while they're waiting.

Gathering during COVID-19

While it is unclear as to why these motorcyclists are getting stopped and fined, one possible explanation could be due to the fact that this event resulted in a major gathering in public.

According to the latest COVID-19 rules in Singapore, individuals are required to wear a mask and stay at least 1 meter away from one another while in public.

Additionally, the TP has stopped motorcyclists during a similar event last year over the Hari Raya weekend.

Netizens' reactions

Upon hearing of this incident, netizens were quick to point out the difference in standards between the treatment of motorcyclists and cyclists by the authorities. Most of them did not see a problem with the event, since it was intended to spread some joy during the festive season.

While we don't know the real reason as to why the authorities have stopped these bikers, it is evident that events like this attract large crowds and could potentially be a new hot spot for the COVID-19 virus.

Point finger to other groups for what?

All these regulation now is to restrict covid spread, so now it's a competition to see who can spread more?? [laugh]

Anyway i think motorcyclist and cyclist are excused masks? Of course when stop moving and get off the bike, then must re-wear lah.

I think it is called "unlawful assembly".

https://sso.agc.gov.sg/Act/PC1871?ProvIds=P4VIII_141-

When ppl feel that they are in a big group they feel invincible, can do anything. Like Little India riot. LoL...

 

The thing with unlawful assembly is that the group must have the intention to commit a crime or carry out an activity that will destroy the peace and tranquillity of the neighbourhood. While I think there are some similarities in which this was a particularly large group of motorcyclists making loud noises, I doubt that there were any harmful or bad intentions with their parade.

They'll park somewhere and then intermingle. Should call plain clothes police and tail them. After they park and start mingling, summon them for breaching safe distancing measures. Then block all the exits ask TP and LTA to roll in and check for illegal modifications, etc. What a party.

    Audi driver flaunts his 1-litre turbocharged 'sports car' by revving loudly in the neighbourhood

    Imagine it is the weekend, and all you want is to get some rest in your peaceful, quiet and comfortable house before the workweek starts.  BUT NO. In the distance, you hear a low, noisy exhaust burbling sound coming from downstairs your block. And this is what you see: What's the first thought that comes to your mind? Frustration? Anger? Disappointment? You tell me.  What Happened? Apparently, this frustrated Bedok resident managed to take a video of this rowdy Audi driver that has constantly disturbed the estate's peace.  From afar or a single glance, the car's quad exhaust makes it appear as though the driver is driving an RS3, S3, or even a "Quattro tuned" Audi Sportback.  If it were any of those cars, the noisy exhaust would have been understandable.  But wait, here comes the twist: That "sports car" is none other than a 1-litre A3 Sportback. Putting Things Into Perspective The Audi A3 1-Litre Sportback has 114BHP and 200 Nm of torque, with 9.9 seconds for its 0 - 100km/h timing.  And the fact that a noisy aftermarket exhaust is equipped to this ordinary car definitely poses as an annoyance to Bedok residents.  Worse still, it pops and bangs even when its speed is <20km/h.  So do you think this Audi A3 has an illegal or LTA approved exhaust? Do you think his exhaust system is "operated"?  Netizens' Comments Sooner or later his car sure kena tow to the workshop. What's the point of stretching a 1-Litre engine to its limit? Damn, that escalated quickly.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    How dare you honk at him? Can't you see he's making an illegal U-turn?

    A certain camcar driver finds himself on the receiving end of an angsty display after honking at a Toyota Corolla for making an illegal U-turn. The entirety of this short clip accurately shows how fragile some drivers' egos can be.  The video starts with the camcar driver travelling down Punggol Field, right behind a grey Toyota Corolla. The vehicle travels between the last and middle lane, with the driver suddenly staying in the middle lane as both vehicles approach the traffic junction.  Presuming that the Corolla would be going straight, the camcar driver tries to make his right turn - only to have the grey car cut him off as the driver attempts to perform an illegal U-turn. Confused, the camcar driver pressed his horn just as he stops in time to avoid a collision. This upsets the other driver, who wildly waves his arm out of his window. However, he doesn't stop there as he rolls down his window, gets out of his car and proceeds to angrily gesture and justify his U-turn. All I can say is that has to be the most small d*@! energy thing I have seen this whole year. Illegal U-turns in Singapore While some netizens have commented that there could have been a U-turn sign, our research says otherwise.  Upon entering the location into Google Maps, we see that the entire stretch that both vehicles were on did not have any 'U-turn ahead' signs. According to the Road Traffic Rules, While some drivers tend to make a large U-turn in order to avoid curb rash on their rims, it is highly discouraged as this might result in a collision with oncoming vehicles on the right-turning lane.  Drivers found guilty of making an unauthorised U-turn will face a fine of up to $150. Netizens' reactions At this point, not even extra driving lessons could save a driver with such a fragile ego.      --------- Witnessed an accident?

    Watch how this Honda Shuttle beat a red light, without actually beating one

    What do you do when you are rushing for time (for whatever reason), and the odds are stacked against you? Watch how this Honda Shuttle "skips" a red light by taking a shortcut: What happened? This incident took place along Corporation Road, at the junction of Yung Sheng Road.  In the dashcam footage, a red Honda Shuttle is seen driving aggressively behind the cam car. Moments later, as the Honda Shuttle approaches the red traffic light, he slows down abruptly. And just when you think he is about to come to a complete stop... He decides to swerve to the nearby filter lane, perform an illegal U-Turn, and go to another filter lane to "skip" that red light (Intelligence +10).  Thinking out of the box Undoubtedly, this driver possesses quick thinking and decisive skills, which are used for the wrong reasons.  Like the one featured in the video, such manoeuvres should not be performed as they are purely reckless and hazardous to other road users.   Exploiting a loophole? According to Chapter 276, Section 112 Part IV No. 54 of the Road Traffic Act, crossing a single continuous white line is allowed only when the road ahead is clear.  Don't be mistaken, this is no loophole. What the driver doesn't realise is the fact that he did not obey traffic directions as indicated.  Although it is uncertain how many offences he committed, I am pretty sure he has committed at least 1 offence from the "skip traffic light" Jutsu. Netizens' comments Yup, from the looks of it I am sure this is not his first time.  Someone forgot about the 9th SAF core value - "Don't get caught" Judging by the way he drives, the sai sure at custom already. Well, what do you think of his actions? And what offence do you think he committed?      --- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    This SMRT Bus has a new proximity sensor - a honking Mitsubishi Eclipse

    A bus driver fails to stay in his lane and swipes the side of a Mitsubishi Eclipse. The video starts with the cam car approaching a traffic junction as he drives down MacPherson road.  The driver promptly stops right behind a green SMRT bus in the middle lane. On the right lane, a red Mitsubishi Eclipse patiently waits for the green arrow indicator to light up. As the light turns green, both the bus and Eclipse start to move forward into the junction. The bus then makes its right turn, cutting into the path of the red Eclipse. Upset that he is unable to make his turn, the driver of the car proceeds to spam the horn at the bus, which sounds a lot like a proximity sensor. The bus driver adamantly continues to make the turn, which led to the gigantic vehicle swiping the left side of the Eclipse. The video ends with the red car finally making its turn. Reckless bus drivers Earlier this year, an SBS bus driver almost collided with another driver after making a reckless right turn at Piccadilly Junction. The driver was going through the junction as the traffic light turns amber.  Instead of stopping, the bus suddenly makes a right turn, causing the driver to swerve out of the way. While Singapore has seen its fair share of bus drivers driving recklessly, this incident raises an important question. Are our current training routines and regulations sufficient for bus drivers or should there be more implemented? Netizens’ reactions     ======== Witnessed an accident?
